A road train is a truck (or traction vehicle) and trailer combination (can have more than one trailer.
See following from:
AEC Road Train.
The AEC road train was built by Hardy Motors a subsidiary of AEC (the Associated Equipment Company) for the British Overseas Mechanical Transport Directing Committee for heavy transport in remote regions of the British Empire [Mad88].
The road train consisted of an eight wheel drive tractor and two eight wheeled trailers. The first and last axles on the tractor steered in opposite directions giving good manoevrability. (This system is still used on the Esarco 8x8 for example.) The trailers were self tracking in that the front and rear bogies also turned in opposite directions. By these means wheels on all twelve axles would follow each other in the same set of wheel tracks. This improved the road train's offroad ability, also "enabling a right angle turn to be made through a ten foot gate" [Smi73].
This is a Renard Road Train, consisting of a truck-locomotive powered by a 7.5 X 9-inch, four-cylinder gasoline motor. In addition to traction provided by the locomotive's rear wheels, the locomotive's two transmissions of four and two speeds, respectively, giving eight speeds in all, were connected to a center drive axle under each wagon in the train by drive shafts with universal and splined connections between the wagon.
The front and rear axles of each wagon were connected by crossreaches to cause the wagons each to follow in its predecessor's path.
Another type of road train is used in places like Disney World, with a traction vehicle pulling passenger carriages, usually open at the sides, to provide slow tours of areas of interest.
